*Project of the Week*
Every week we’ll be choosing a project that we think is not only a great opportunity, but also a good example of a textbook project e.g. full bio & description, reference tracks (if applicable), photos, full personal profile etc.
This week it’s Looking for Music for an Independent Film. We really like this project because it’s something a little different to what’s normally posted. Get pitching!

A final note from the team…
The whole MG team headed to the Notting Hill/BMI Networking Event in London on Thursday and we had a great time. These events are wicked, hundreds of people attend from all areas of the industry. It’s a great way to get your name out there and meet new people to work with, but it’s also a whole lotta fun. They happen every month or so, so get yourself down to the next one if you can!
Come back next week for more industry news and updates
